Re: RSA RTE Radio

I think there's offence there if you're looking for it.

Unlike most cagers we have great flexibility in our nimbleness of the road.

We can quickly:

Speed up
Slow down
Overtake
Change lanes

in comparison to yokes with 4 or more wheels.

And i have enjoyed making the most of that nimbleness for the last 33 years of biking. I'm lucky enough to have experience in the driving licence categories ABC both professionally and for fun.

If it helps to save one life then it's partially a good thing. The media most often paints bikers and biking in a negative light. But stats will always be used to give an angle to support any group fighting a battle....

That would fall under their "Driving too fast for the road conditions" category.

Was in a RTA few years ago, nobody was breathalised by the roadside, a handwritten note ob the summons prompted me to chase the hospital for all blood tests done and their results. In the end what I brought to court - was the hospitals denial of any toxicology been done.

Re: RSA RTE Radio

Sorry for regugitating a previous thread and ranting but this does have context...
How come they shell out stat after stat albeit some of dubious veracity, when it comes to m/c RTA's yet no stats on the amount of robberies that were carried out by these guys and now they are up for discriminsting.. political correctness gone mad...
